So, pigs trotters, I picked these up at the farmers market in Walthamstow a couple of weeks ago. I'll try anything once, but this one, never again. Basically there was no meat on my trotters only skin and fat, so I don't think I'll be bothering with this again. Amazing crackling but not much else!
Pig's Trotters with Crunchy Coleslaw (from Good Food Channel)
4 pig's trotters
1 tsp cajun seasoning
1 red pepper, seeds removed and sliced
1 yellow pepper, seeds removed and sliced
dash lemon juice
For the coleslaw
1 small white cabbage, shredded
2 carrots, grated
1 small courgette, grated
4 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp caster sugar
splash cider vinegar
baked sweet potatoes
Preheat the oven to 180C. Wash the trotters well and remove any excess hairs. This can be done by burning them off.
Rub the trotters in salt and lemon juice, then in the Cajun seasoning, rubbing them in well. Place the trotters on a baking tray or small roasting tin with the sliced peppers and onion. Roast for 1½ - 2 hours or until really tender.
For the coleslaw: while the trotters are cooking, combine all the coleslaw ingredients in a bowl, then season to taste with salt and pepper and keep in the fridge until ready to serve.
Serve the trotters with the coleslaw, baked sweet potatoes, hot sauce and vinegar.
